A cutting garden should include your favorite flowers or colors. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Annual: cosmos, ipomopsis, zinnias, red and blue salvias, sunflowers, asters, larkspur, statice, snapdragons

Perennials: Shasta daisies, purple coneflowers, black-eyed susans, verbascum, yarrow, dianthus, scabiosa, gaillardia, coreopsis, liatris, hollyhocks, phlox, peonies

Shrubs: roses, lilacs, and hydrangeas

You might also include some ornamental grasses and ferns, as well as everlastings for dried arrangements.
